UPDATED 9/17/19 rev:2


Virtual Northwest Airlines to continues to support the Relief Efforts from Hurricane Dorian to the Bahamas.  Several Islands were devistated from the storm including Freeport  where the airport, Grand Bahama Intl. (MYGF) has been reopened.  Nassau's Lynden Pindling International Airport (MYNN) was the primary operational airport and that's where the major relief flights where focused.

 vNWA has Cargo Routes out of our main Hubs of MSP, DTW, and MEM into MYGF and MYNN.  We also have routes out of Miami Intl. (KMIA) into both MYGF & MYNN.  We have added 2 routes between to 2 Islands as well.

  As always Pilots will receive an award for participation in their Pilot Center and bonus hours will be awarded to the top 3 pilots for the most routes flown in and out of MYGF & MYNN.  We will run these flights tentatively through the end of October.  (VNW6500 - VNW6519)

Let's show our support in these Relief Flights for the devistation the people of the Bahamas are experiencing.
